Facebook users are once again being targeted by scammers as a fake Facebook page has been set up pretending to be Smyths Toys Superstores, and so far more than 11,000 people have shared their first post in an attempt to win a prize.
Whether the prize exists we do not know, but the page is not the official Smyths Toys Superstore page, and the fake one has been reported to them and to Facebook.
Smyths toys have said "We are currently investigating this and hoping to have it removed asap."
The page was uploaded last night, with the promise of a £300 giveaway, and that was enough for thousands of people to like and share the post.
You can see the fake page here, and the official Smyths Toys Superstores page here. Both link to the official Smyths Toys website*, but the fake has no blue tick to verify it, and nothing posted before yesterday.
If you have shared this competition post you are advised to remove it from your timeline to prevent the fake page reaching even more people.
We expect more fake pages to pop up in the run up to Christmas, so please be aware, and check that the page is the official one before you enter any competitions or share posts.
